National challenges regarding race, law enforcement, and access to opportunity negatively impact Black men and boys; yet, many approaches to addressing these issues are anchored at the city-level. This Campaign for Black Male Achievement (CBMA) report unveils a Black Male Achievement (BMA) City index to track and communicate cities' efforts to advance Black males. The BMA Index scores 50 cities, which include approximately 5.5 million Black males, more than 30 percent of all Black men and boys in the country. The report spotlights the ten highest scored cities and provides in-depth profiles of how the top three scoring cities are responding to the needs of Black men and boys to help them achieve their full potential.
